Ok I fitted a new cassette and chain. ( the chain is the correct length)
When going from the small chain ring to the middle the chain stays on the small and jams on the chain stay on the way round.
It did this before the new chain and cassette was fitted also.
It is a regular problem not on and off.

Any ideas on a solution?
Thanks Chris

The middle ring is old but not too worn. Bolts ok.
Chain joined with a new quick link, no tight links.

This is a friends bike, on my Klein it has a chain suck thing bolted to the chain stays, I know it's factory fited but can I get something like that for the quake.
Would it help moving the chain set away from the chain stay a few mm( to the right)?
